While we still have work to do, the establishment of athletics’ Council For Diversity and Inclusion is a significant and genuine effort to broaden and deepen the university’s commitment to a culture of inclusion. The council is our most recent structural engagement to effect meaningful and lasting change across the OSU Family.” {okstate.com}

Switzer recalls first meeting with Sutton:

While a student at Arkansas, Barry Switzer got the opportunity to watch Eddie Sutton do his thing.

“It was kind of neat to watch Eddie (Sutton) bring the ball down against Kansas State in 1958,” Switzer told the O’Colly. “But both of us got a good laugh out of this story. After this game was over and they lost to Kansas State… both Eddie and I got to see my team, the Arkansas Razorbacks, with three minutes to go in the game have 54 points and Oscar Robertson had 56! For Cincinnati as a sophomore, first year as a player for them.

“We both got to marvel at that. That was an NCAA record at the time.” {Franchise}
